    Good thing we have such a large catalog of GPS guided rides available for people to ride on their own or in small groups. Provides some opportunities for people to ride in place of the cancelled events.

    In fact, that’s what I was doing earlier tonight. I went for about 45 miles and hit some Rustic Roads and Historical Markers that you made GPS files for. So great!

    I have not been able to get out to record any Rustic Roads yet this year due to you know what. I am only fourteen away from my sticker and hope to get it done this year. But while visiting one of the local Harley shops I found out about the WI Harley Davidson Dealers Association Passport Tour. By visiting the fifteen participating dealers and getting your Passport stamped you get an opportunity to win prizes. I have another goal for the 2020 riding season and have been posting about my travels on my blog at: http://viewfromamotorcycle.blogspot.com/

    Rustic Roads are ideal for leisurely motorcycle riding. Wisconsin has a large system of lightly-traveled asphalt or gravel roads highlighting the state's natural beauty. Presently, Wisconsin has 120 marked Rustic Roads covering over 724 miles in 59 counties.

    Travel at least 10 of these roads and you'll be eligible for a Rustic Roads Motorcycle Tour patch. Travel on 25 Rustic Roads or more qualifies you for a special state certificate.​

    I've also heard talk of a patch if you do all 100, but that doesn't seem to be from the DOT, but rather a community effort.

    10 is the DOT sponsored patch. 100 gets you the community sourced sticker. Inmate @Powershouse is the contact in the thread linked below.

    Safe to assume Central ADV Rally is a nogo this year since it isn't even on the list and FB hasn't been updated since February? Web site still links to some porn site now in case you want to modify the "info" link from previous years.

    I actually don't have a ride. Been coming up the last couple of years for the people and food. The S1000XR is up for sale. I test drove a KTM 790 Adventure R today and it was very nice. Also kicking around a 850GS, KTM 390 Adventure, Honda CB500X, WR250r, and CRF250L Rally. So definitely on the market for an ADV this year. We might still come up for the camping, fishing, and horseback riding.

    Looks like the Bucky registration is delayed as well. Not officially cancelled so far. Fingers crossed it still happens.
